Play Dough

Found this awesome recipe to make some good play dough, I’m so gonna do it on a boring day xD  It says it’s edible and you can add some extract to not have it taste bitter…….hmmmmmmm……. the possibilities   (n_n)b

Ingredients:
1 C Flour
1 C Water
1/4 C Salt
1 TBSP Vegetable Oil
2 tsp Cream of Tarter
Food Coloring (actual coloring or a kool-aid packet will do)
Sparkles (optional)
Sauce Pan and Wooden Spoon

Pour in all the ingredients and mix well.

Once the mixture is (mostly) clump free. Heat over MEDIUM heat.

Stir. Don’t stop stirring. After a few minutes it will start to clump up.

Stir, Stir Stir.Just keep stirring until the Play Dough is formed. It will  form one big clump.

Remove from heat, and knead by hand.

Once cooled it’s ready to go.

ily, I<3U, I love u, I love You ?

These are beautiful 20 roses that my love got me this Valentines day.. (to match my age at the time, since I turned 21 in April)

The point of this post is simple – Don’t Give Up Hope!!!

I remember when I was in middle school, I always had this fantasy that once I get to highschool I’d lose all the fat I had on me, and that I’d suddenly turn pretty enough to turn one special guy’s head. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen – not even the weight loss – not one guy was interested in me in highschool, and I simply stuck with my small group of friends and went through highschool silently, almost nonexistent. I then imagined, while in highschool, that once I turned 18 this time my fantasy would finally come true – I’d lose weight, and find that one special guy.

I graduated highschool when I was 17, and had a bit over 3 months until my new life at university would begin. For that new life, I decided, to finally make a change. I’d work out, diet, start wearing makeup, and try to stop wearing dark clothes (the dark clothes deal didn’t really fade until like 3 semesters into uni).

Time for university – I lost quite a bit of weight, and started wearing my make up (looking back all I can say is, ‘Oh, God why?!’ my makeup SUCKED SO BAD *facepalm*). I then turned 18 in my 2nd semester, still fat, still no special guy, but I did have a couple of guys crush on me, granted they were asses (no seriously, they were assholes) but hey! Improvement.

And then, a few months before my 19th birthday, I found him. We hit it off like immediately, and it freaked me out, part of me felt like I’ve lived this before, like I knew the steps he’d take; I anticipated the moves like I’ve been through this with him before. It was weird and felt right, everyone knew we’d end up together, hell, we knew it as well – Some even thought we already were together.

Flash forward to my 19th birthday, he asked me out then, I almost said no, not because I didn’t want to, but I was freaked out and usually, back then, when I got freaked out, I avoided the situation. Thankfully, I didn’t blab out the answer I didn’t want, but replied with what I did want , which was ‘yes’. Damn, was I awkward.

So now, flash forward more, it’s been now…2 years and 4 months together, feels like more, feels like forever, feels like I’ve known him all my life and don’t remember how my life was without him. It’s weird.

Yes, we’ve had major up and downs, helluva fights, issues here and there, but hey! A relationship isn’t a relationship without all that lovely goodness – plus, it’d be boring as fuck :p

I’m grateful that I didn’t have to go through breakups and major heartbreak, I’m grateful I waited and didn’t rush desperately into anything, and I’m glad that I didn’t worry about weight, makeup, and boys in middle/highschool :p I was able to enjoy my obliviousness back then, and enjoyed living in my made up fantasy world.

Now, I get to enjoy my adult life with him, and I wouldn’t change anything in the events that led me to this place in which I am with him, my fantasy world is hard to revisit now, as my fantasy love life is now my reality, and yes, I’ve lost every piece of fat in my body, I’m out of my long awkward stage, even my face seemed to change, and I’m gaining (accidentally) abs xD

Thank you, for listening to my ramble of a tale.

Graduation Day D; Those were my highschool (grade 11) uniform xD

3rd semester in uni :p Early this year ^^

The End!

Tarot cards

What are Tarot Cards?

“The tarot (play /ˈtær/; first known as trionfi and later as tarocchi, tarock, and others) is a pack of playing cards (most commonly numbering 78), used from the mid-15th century in various parts of Europe to play a group of card games such as Italian tarocchini and French tarot. From the late 18th century until the present time the tarot has also found use by mystics and occultists in efforts at divination or as a map of mental and spiritual pathways.”  Wikipedia

Do I believe in them? Yeah, I do actually! I’m pretty open-minded in life (and afterlife), and the cards so far never steered me wrong! I love the deck I own, beautifully designed.

I remember a funny time when I brought the cards to highschool, we had this really insane teacher, who seemed to have bi polar, and she made life a living Hell for us (mostly girls, she flirted a lot with the guys), whenever we would ask the cards about her, we pulled out the Devil card, and whenever we just mentioned her, the Devil card appeared. This happened literally every single time we talked about her! We even tested it out to make sure it wasn’t a fluke; we shuffled the cards, split it into 3 stacks, and pulled a card out of one of the stacks – and yes, we pulled the Devil card.

Another time, is a few years ago when I asked where I’d meet the love of my life, and what type of person he’d be. The cards described that I’d meet him in a place of education, he’d be responsible, well with financial stuff, and that he’d be a business oriented guy, and that he’d be the love of my life, and that I’d be secure, and that there’ll be many obstacles and hardships but we’d end up overcoming them   – basically, the cards spoke of a guy I’d never be interested in, and someone that I never saw myself come across, or hang out in the same social circles.

Well, damn, I met him 2 years after that. A business major – Accounting and Finance Major to be exact, he’s very responsible, and he’s the love of my life, and yes I’m feeling very secure, and yes there had been many struggles and obstacles that we have overcome.

So yeah, so far the tarot cards haven’t let me down, and these 2 experiences are just a few of many, they have even helped out friends of mine.

But hey, that’s just my opinion.

Dragonball Z! Sailor Moon! Back for More!

Soooo happy to hear that there will be a new DBZ movie next year supposedly in March, and it’ll be part of the 13 DBZ movies made! (as in no DBGT etc) Akira Toriyama will be working very closely with the movie production, so we can be assured it’ll be filled with typical DBZ-y goodness!

Also, Sailor Moon will be re-mastered with new animations, but the same voice actors. The creator of Sailor Moon, Naoko Takeuchi, is involved with, therefore we don’t have to worry too much of them ruining our childhood memory! 😀 It should be aired by next summer!

 

 

 

Sad…Sad

What is it with these days, “artworks” of blobs and lines, and droplets of paint splashed across the canvas being sold for thousands and/or millions of KD – This became even clearer to me when I had to visit an art exhibition for extra credit. I kept starting open-mouthed, in total disbelief, and the prices on these those blotches of paint, with ripped up news paper pieces, and strings. Unbelievable. I don’t get what goes on in the mind of the people that believe those works are worth that amount of money. The work were that of the same level of a preschooler.. actually, the preschooler’s work would probably show more effort put into it.

It’s so sad, it really is, because of all the amazing artists I have come across in my time on DeviantArt:

This is Art, this is Talent.
